Celebrating Me

Hey, guess what? On Saturday, my fantabulous blog will turn two years old! So to celebrate I am hosting my very first giveaway with two completely awesome prizes. Are you ready for this?

First Prize:


An Autographed Picture of Me. This is going to be worth a lot of money when I'm rich and famous and wanted by the FBI.

Second Prize:


My colorful collection of toe jam! Comes in cherry flavor.

Okay, so those aren't the real prizes. I am going to give two, though.

The Real First Prize:
A $30 gift card to Target. Because we've kissed and made up so I feel like our relationship is strong enough that I can send my friends there again.

The Real Second Prize:

Ummmm...I don't know yet. I was thinking of giving away a dozen cupcakes but you'd have to live locally. Or I can dig through my gift collection and find something cool. What do you want me to give as a second prize?

EDIT: I've decided the second prize will be a dozen cupcakes if you live locally. If not, I'll send you those new Premium Triple Chocolate M&Ms. Sooooooo good!

Here's how to get your entries:
1. Leave a comment on this post indicating that you would like to win an awesome prize. It would really help if you a) have a blog b) have an email address listed on your profile or c) leave your email address on your comment so I can contact you should you win.
2. Become a "follower" of my blog for an extra entry. Yes, this is a shameless attempt to boost my numbers because I currently only have 8 followers (whom I love and adore and will automatically give an extra entry). And you *MUST* be a follower to get the extra entry. Telling me I'm on your Google Reader doesn't count. I need the proof!

Contest ends at Midnight (MDT) on Friday, February 13th. Winners will be chosen on my blogiversary (Saturday, Feb 14th). I'll put all entries into a hat and have the child who isn't currently in time out draw out two names, then I'll post it here.

Oooo I'm in. Too bad I don't live close, I would like some cupcakes my dear.

Jessica said...

I want to win! I would never turn down delicious, handmade cupcakes. I will even drive to your house to pick them up. Easier for you that way!

Amber said...

I'm totally in too. I enjoy stalking you on your blog (because you live so far away, I miss you too much!)

Amber said...

PS- I follow your blog on Google Reader, but I don't show up as an official "follower"- So you probably have a lot more than you think.

Count me in. I want some of your cupcakes. You make the best frosting in the world! I don't know how to become a follower, but I'll look into it.

Nat said...

Ooh me too! Do I get an extra entry since I have to type this comment with the on-screen keybord? See my blog on WHY I have to do it this way...

Happy Blogiversary!

Melanie J said...

What's wrong with giving away the toe jam.

Okay, suggestions.

1) Give away a copy of your favorite book unless it's one of the Twilight ones because everyone probably read those.

or

2) Give away some of your favorite candy. Especially if they're Swedish fish.

Diane said...

OH!! OH!! PICK ME!! PICK ME!!
I am also a follower on Google Reader, I hope that counts! Thanks for creating a blog that always brings a smile to my face! It's almost as good as chocolate...almost.

Brooke said...

Me, Me, Me, Me, Me!!!!! I would love an awesome prize. But if one of the other 21 win, reading giggling, ahhhhh-ing, and sighing at your blog is prize enough. It's very entertaining. BTW can we have another Soap Opera Sunday?

Emma said...

Ooh I want to be a winner and a follower! You are so generous with the toe jam, we hoard ours. lol

Debi said...

I love your picture, you look very pretty! Put my name in the hat. I'm a very lucky person. :)

Tausha said...

ok-so I will do all the things that you requested. You should feel so very special because I am not a "follower" of anyone! Ooooh-do you feel special.
I think that I should get an extra entry because you are ONE day going to send me pics so I can help you with your design dillema.
And one more thing-I am local!!!
YEA!!!! I would so come down there and look at your house after I give you the ideas-just to make sure that you did it right :)
Wish me luck!!! I really want to win!!!
